We stayed for 2 days / 2 nights at the Himalayan Hideaway in Cottage No. 210 ( Tenzing Norgay). The resort is a pleasure to stay in - lovely well kept rooms, a private sit-out with a fabulous view of the Ganga as well as the mountains. The Lodge Manager, Madhav, does a magnificent job of giving "personalised as you... More

If its peace and tranquility you're wanting, this is just the place: Having travelled throughout India for 3 weeks, I wanted somewhere a little different from the dust and bustle and frenetic pace of the cities and towns, and this beautiful and picturesque resort came up with everything I needed. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, Madhav the manager... More

A true Himalayan Hideaway with a fine colonial touch in the cottages designed like forest bunglows. Much recommended as a weekend destination for urban folks seeking a peaceful time in the Himalayan foothils. The hiking trails to the bank of Ganges, white sand and wide view sit outs are refreshing while the interiors and food are impressive too. Slightly expensive... More

We were 5 girls staying only for one night. We were given adjoining rooms with the best view possible. Not only that, we requested the management to pack us lunch so that we could enjoy it by the river and they gave us such a lavish treatment! The bonfire was also very well organised and they got us pakodas and... More

The so called 10 room resort is slightly better than a hostel for a price of Super Deluxe 5 star. If one needs to end up having food apart from inclusion in tariff, expect to be ripped off. The place is neat and clean. Staff is courteous but does not know much about hospitality. There is no coordination between their... More
